30 Great Quotes for Travel Lovers

It's been a long while since I have shared any Words for Wednesday posts! But, being a quote lover, I still keep a running journal of all my favorites. So I figured why not share some quotes that would feed my thirst for wanderlust?! Here are 30 of my favorite travel-inspiring quotes...

We'll just drive." - Victoria Erickson

    1. Thanks! I have 3 journals full of quotes and most of them come from books I've read, so they aren't as all over the place. Happy Thursday!

  5. I love the quotation from Flaubert, it's so humbling to understand how little we know of the world, and I cannot understand people who don't want to explore outside their own country!!
